Okay, another torture game, but only 7 1/2 innings worth. Matt Cain was simply Matt Cain. Zero runs in the post-season. CJ Wilson tossed a really good game, too. Edgar Renteria! This was the pitching matchup everybody expected in game 1. But it got really out of hand in the bottom of the 8th inning. Both the Giants' bats and the Rangers' bullpen did some things out of character for them. And, how does Ron Washington let a guy walk more than one batter in that situation in a close World Series game? That just set up their 9-0 collapse.
I saw a post-game interview with Washington, and he was visibly annoyed at some of the questions. Are the Rangers unraveling? Let's hope so. The Giants need all the opposing team's blunders they can get. But...and this is a large but...the Rangers still have to play their first World Series game at home. Those fans should be absolutely crazy. GO GIANTS!
